Black Monday has arrived and the coaches and officers of the NFL are starting to leave.
In Chicago, the Bears cleaned up the house. Head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace reportedly sacked after disappointing 6-11 season, ESPN reported.
Nagy was 34-31 with Chicago, including a 12-4 start in 2018 in which he was the NFL Coach of the Year, but they lost in the wildcard game in the playoffs. They didn’t finish with a winning record in any of Nagy’s next three seasons.
Nagy, a disciple of Andy Reid, was brought in to revolutionize the Bears offensive, which never happened. He was never able to find the right quarterback, with Mitch Trubisky failing to develop as hoped before first-round pick Justin Fields struggled as a rookie. The Bears have won two of his 10 starts and he finished with 7 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Chicago wants another spirit to help Fields advance.
Pace drafted both quarters and hired Nagy. He was fired after a seven-year reign in which he was 48-65 years old.
